The colors are great and the "zebra-fying" is amazing!

Did you make it? How are the numbers done?

That is awesome! I'd like to hear how you did the numbers too.

I tinted royal icing in the pink and black separate icing bags.
Printed numbers off the computer and used write-on transparency film for overhead projectors laid on top of the prints. I traced the pink stripes first then traced out the black. I made two sets, the second set I flipped the print over and traced them once again giving me a finished back to the numbers.
Once they were dry enough to peel off the transparency I flipped them over and sandwiched the two sides together over bbq scewers. Once they were firmly stuck together I piped a bead around each number to seal them together and finish the edges.

I must say I loved how this cake went together and looked when finished! I almost didn't want to stack them so you could see the layers separately to get a good look at the zebra print!

Thanks for the great comments! I hear it was really good! lol
